Unhappy Problem running giFT (with FastTrack plugin) as ordinary user


I have installed giFt and the FastTrack plugin.
All works fine when run as root or su. However when i try to run it as an ordinary user i get the following error:

[12:46:24] giftd 0.11.6 (Jun 2 2004 14:35:30) started
[12:46:24] *** GIFT-FATAL: couldn't load protocol in file /usr/lib/giFT/ file not found
[12:46:24] *** Often times more information can be found in the log file or with the -v command line switch.

Anyone come accross this problem before, any ideas how to go about fixing it?

The problem is that you have the wrong plugin name in your giftd.conf file. The file should be located at ~/.giFT/giftd.conf and probably contains a line similar to this one:
plugins = OpenFT:Gnutella:Fasttrack
Just change that line so that it reads:
plugins = OpenFT:Gnutella:FastTrack
and you should be good to go. That capitalization makes a crucial difference in this case.
